The journey...

by Christina

Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.
— Winston Churchill

Perhaps Winston Churchill was referring to a monumental act in time; one of those historical events I should probably remember. Alas I don't, so I'm inserting my interpretation as it is applicable to the current Healthy Knitter walk-along. 

In week 1 of the walk-along, "Interlude" we begin with acknowledging our overall goal for the 6 weeks and then develop a weekly walking plan. "Every day you make progress. Every step may be fruitful". Each day represents an opportunity to take steps towards a healthier you. But this is a process and not one that ever ends. Our quest to be healthy is continual; so as Winston Churchill so eloquently reminds us this is an ever-lengthening and ever-improving path and represents an amazing process. This is our journey.

I have a bracelet that I purchased years ago at a time in my life when I felt I needed more peace and patience. My 3 children were young (all under the age of 5) and I was exhausted. The bracelet was inscribed with the following:

Peace, this we choose each day...

I've recently decided that I need a new bracelet that reads:

Health, this we choose each day...

Knit one. Walk two.
